“Employers out of touch with graduate expectations”

Managers are out of touch with the expectations of graduates, overestimating the importance of good leadership and underestimating the value of money, status and career progression.

This is according to joint research from the Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM) and Ashridge Business School, which found that their top three job priorities were carrying out challenging/interesting work, getting high salaries and advancing their careers.

However, almost four graduates in 10 (38%) were not satisfied with their career advancement in their current organisation, while one-third (31%) of managers said that the greatest challenge when working with graduates was managing their expectations.

Research also found that, of the 1,900 graduates surveyed for this report, more than half expected to be promoted to a management role within three years of starting work, with one in 10 believing that they would be appointed to a management position a year into their first job.”
